As I can see, there are not many tools for checking out the system inside. So I want to suggest http://www.hwinfo.com/. It's free and powerful. Please add it at the next release. Thanks!

Nice ^^
I thought the DOS version was not freeware, unlike the Windows one, but maybe it changed recently, for the site now does state it is freeware too :]

@Constance: Yes you're right. I thought so, too. But now both versions are freeware. ^^

I've added the DOS HWiNFO 5.50 to my UBCD

system.cfg
Code:
LABEL -
MENU LABEL HWiNFO 5.50
TEXT HELP
HWiNFO is a *POWERFUL* hardware detection program. It is simple, quick and
on most systems very efficient. It "tries" to give only important information
about all the hardware devices in your computer so that you need not look
inside the PC to see what's there.
ENDTEXT
LINUX /boot/syslinux/memdisk
INITRD /ubcd/images/fdubcd.img.gz
APPEND raw ubcdcmd=hwinfo


system.lst
Code:
title HWiNFO 5.50\n HWiNFO is a *POWERFUL* hardware detection program. It is simple, quick and\n on most systems very efficient. It "tries" to give only important information\n about all the hardware devices in your computer so that you need not look\n inside the PC to see what's there.
map --mem /ubcd/images/fdubcd.img.gz (fd0)
map --hook
write --offset=15 (fd0)/bin/setargs.bat ubcdcmd=hwinfo\r\n
chainloader (fd0)+1
rootnoverify (fd0)


ubcd.ini
Code:
[System]
.....
hwinfo; "hwinfo.exe"; -$; HWiNFO (System information tool)


I placed the program archive into the dosapps folder and used the System menu -- you can also use the Custom folder and menu (might be better actually, in case you ever need to migrate the program to UBCD 5.04, for example)
